NORMAN -- Think you have the best 3-on-3 team on campus? Prove it.
The OU men's and women's basketball teams will host the inaugural Boom Squad 3-on-3 Bash on Friday, Nov. 4 at 6 p.m. The 3-on-3 tournament will take place on the outdoor court between the Walker and Adams dorms.
Eight men's teams and eight women's teams will compete in their respective brackets to take home the $500 prize. Games will take place simultaneously on each half of the court, with each game being played to 11 points (baskets will be worth one point for inside the arc, two points for outside).
The Boom Squad 3-on-3 Bash will feature appearances by both the OU men's and women's basketball teams along with giveaways and prizes for fans in attendance.
Register your team online. The eight team slots will be awarded in order of submission, with additional teams added to a waiting list in case of no-shows. Teams must be fully comprised of current OU students with valid student IDs. After registration, teams will be notified via email of further details in preparation for the tournament.
The event will help students gear up for the start of Sooner basketball season, as the men's team hosts Washburn four nights later (Nov. 8) in a home exhibition contest. The women's squad will play a pair of exhibition games, hosting Midwestern State on Nov. 2 and Oklahoma City University on Nov. 7. Both team's tip off the regular season at home on Sunday, Nov. 13.
